luther king's, and president lincoln's. >> i barack hussein obama -- >> reporter: standing on the national mall, as many as 800,000 people. that is nearly twice as many people who attended the second inaugurals of presidents clinton and bush. before the oath and the party, today the president did a little work. >> this inauguration is a symbol of how our democracy works and how we peacefully transfer power. >> reporter: a national day of service, brought the first family to a d.c. elementary school for a bit of painting while around the nation's capital, the final touches were going on the parade route and the visitors were already starting to gather on the people's lawn. i have covered a couple of these, david. they can be very, very chilly. here's the good news, the forecast calls for maybe 40 degrees when the president takes the oath on monday. >> we'll take 40. >> david kerley, see you at the capital. >> want to bring in ginger zee. >> it's going to be 40 degrees. not bad at all. we're lucky it's not happening on tuesday. that's when a huge push of arctic air is coming
's not unprecedented. three presidents in the past have done the same. the first belonged to president lincoln. he used it in his swearing-in in 1861. and the second belonged to martin luther king jr. it was his traveling bible and it's fitting because today is martin luther king day. after the swearing-in, the president and the first lady family and friends, congressional leaders all head in to statuary hall for lunch. this is a tradition that dates back to 1889. they'll dine on bison and good old-fashioned apple pie. >> we go to chief correspondent and host of "face the nation" bob schieffer. he's covering his 12th inaugurations. good morning. >> actually it's 13. i came to lbj's with my mom. she got an invitation. the first one i covered, you're absolutely right, was 1968. and hearing robert gibbs talk about he will stress togetherness and trying to you know, heal this partisan divide it made me think of theodore roosevelt in his inaugural speech. he said at one point our relations with other powers are important, he said, but even more important are our relations among o
with the president to ask him favors or get their appointments and, of course, that didn't change with lincoln. changed after garfield who was assassinated but the ranks have really closed around the presidency, really hard to get to him. has that had an affect on the role of the president over the past century? >> that's a great question. first of all, the white house itself was open. up until the of world war ii in europe, people could have picnics on the white house lawn. >> right. >> before then people would stroll into the white house. the president would bump into someone at the white house. people would come and ask the president for jobs. after pearl harbor, that's when the security apparatus goes up around the president. but the other thing to mention is what we're using right now, the power of television. what he will vision has done is in one sense made it more intimate with the president but also created a certain distance as well. >> you know, steve, with he talk about george washington, abraham lincoln, i always put grant in the underappreciated category. there were a lot of clun
. >> "new york times" best-selling author of lincoln biography "team of rivals" doris kearns goodwin in between awards shows has joined us. and nbc news special correspondent tom brokaw. welcome to all of you. tom, that's where we tee it up. the president, as he begins a second term, very difficult climate in washington and very real expectations. >> yes. and i was looking at those top three priorities for the american people. and they all fit into his single most difficult task, it seems to me, both conceptually and specifically. in the next couple of years, he only has a couple of years, these are second terms and not four-year terms. you're running right up to the mid-term election frankly. there's a desperate need for the country going forward to do something about tax reform and entitlements sitting under the umbrella of fixing the economy and creating near jobs and stopping spending. that's going to be tough. we have been giving people things for a long time. now they'll have to reel them in and fine tune them, and that will take an exceptional hand in the white house to pull t
their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interrupting. >> we should get a jar. >> should get a jar. he's a likable guy. we spent time with him. i like him an awful lot. he's ae's a likable guy. he hasn't reached out to republicans and he hasn't reached out a lot. when he reached out, they haven't come. he said his daughters don't want to spend that much time with him. he will have a lot of time to play cards. >> get merlot. >> cigarettes. will the president let them smoke? >> coming up. arianna huffington and nbc director chuck todd and "washington post," eugene robinso
presidency. lincoln comes to mind. kennedy was beloved after he was assassinated. great line from cicero that was conflict about policies, ask not is the quote. so i think barack obama is different. he is african-american and that is such a trim setting event i think will be going to be studying for years to com. >> heather: brad, what is your take? >> i think to be memorable, unite america and challenge us but also has to inspire us. let's remember that the president has an opportunity to give a patriotic and visionary speech but followed within two weeks with a state of the union that is going to be road map. what is he going to do the next four years? you won't necessarily hear that tomorrow, but will you hear it within the next two weeks. hopefully that will give us more dimension to the inaugural address and what he hopes to accomplish. >> heather: we heard the president has two occasions to talk about his presidency moving forward. we are entering a rare moment in history. president obama faces as president clinton and george w. bush before him the challenge of giving a second inau
screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling.
]. >> this was not lincoln, although lincoln's second inaugural is referenced early on in the speech. that was in the middle of the civil war when lincoln gave that. this is not f.d.r., we have nothing to fear but fear itself, in the middle of the gr"great depression." a speech on social justice and injecting into the main fabric of american history and seneca falls and what that meant in 1948, civil rights movement and equality and inject seneca falls and mentioned women about three different times, mentioned stonewall, which when i went to graduate school here at georgetown, stonewall was considered lefty history not in the main fabric of the mainstream books, he threw stonewall in there as if it was a military battle site. and then selma. i thought that made it a historic speech. i can see why the republicans aren't that happy with it. it did seem to be a speech that appealed to the base largely. those reasons and then finally climate, joe, the president not talking about climate in '12, in debates climate didn't come up. the journalist never asked one climate question. i think 50 years from now, climate
: president obama's left hand was on two bibles, one belonging to abraham lincoln, the other to martin luther king jr. following his inaugural address and a signing ceremony in the capitol, the president and vice president paid tribute to dr. king a second time, pausing at a bust of the slain civil rights leader in the rotunda. during the procession down pennsylvania avenue, the president and first lady walked part of the way and later took their place in the reviewing stand as the inaugural parade began. ♪ >> reporter: and the party continued into the night. ♪ he's president and he's on fire ♪ >> reporter: michelle obama wowed the audiences at two inaugural balls in a ruby chiffon and velvet gown by jason wu. but the celebration was not as grand as 2009 which saw the president and first lady attend ten balls. >> now that the parties are over the work on president obama's second term begins. susan mcginnis with more on that. good morning. >> reporter: anne-marie, good morning. yes, item number one is the debt limit. we learned on monday that the house wil
on a $7.3 million renovation project. the first phase of the project covers the stretch to lincoln way and is repaved with a new drainage system, new median, and better access for bicycles and pedestrianses. >> the area has been quiet with the weather the way it has been. >> it hasn't quite been bicycling and hiking weather. at least for the wimps among us. >> for the wimps among us, this weekend we have the warmest weather. you can see the omega shape of the high pressure with clouds coming in and turning left and going into canada and dropping the cold air to the eastern two-thirds of the country and notice the deepest water or the most water you can see the greens, oranges and yellows and the orange right here is the dry air, the down sloping wind coming off the mountain, drying and slowly heating and that is why we get the warming tend. temperatures are still frosty inland 20's and mid-to-upper 30's around the bay and to the coast. check out noon, if you want to head outside it will be easier to have your lunch outside and it will not be windy and the temperatures hang out low-to-m
for the president and i even have a prayer that as he and others handle the lincoln bible and the king bible, that the bible won't just be a ceremonial piece, but it will be so compelling that they'll be moved not only to read some of it, but to do it. and yet, we're talking now about gun control, and not taking up that weapon of love, that weapon that never fails. and we are want to go control the guns and take the guns away, but allow others to use them with certain restrictions and no restrictions, but forgetting that message of the love, and that's one of the points and yet we'll realized the killing of a certain people group in america and that's the little babies in the womb of course, and still, you want to take away the guns, but you're not going to control the abortion industry. so, there are some discrepancies between the message of the current administration and the whole nation and the whole world today, and those messages that are timeless from martin luther king, jr., and it it boils down, governor, to love for our neighbors and ourselves. >> mike: you've pointed out roe versus
the president took the oath of office with his hand on the bibles that belong to president lincoln and dr. king. after the inaugural luncheon in the capitol building, president obama took a moment to reflect at a statue of dr. king. soon, a statue of rosa parks would join that tribute of dr. king inside the capital. we've seen the president reflect on the civil rights movement. the president explicitly evokes their sacrifices in his inaugural address. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that allover us are crea of us equal, is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our fore bearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all of those men and women, sung and unsung who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we could not walk alone, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextrekblely bound to the freedom offer soul on earth. >> the freedom of every soul. the heart of the civil rights movement. earlier today, civil rights leader and georgia congressman joan lewis talked about this historic d
"lincoln." >> state dinners. >> the majority leader's office called later and said, yeah, we got the invitation that afternoon, four hours beforehand. but you invite congressmen and senators over, one on one, they'll come. >> there is an upside to cooperation. not every battle is one of opposition. begin to reframe the image of the party with the rest of the country, number one. at the end of the day, that's what people want to see, you working with the administration. to joe's point, you don't have to agree with everything, but you can at least stand there and show that we're trying to make the effort. so when you have the noise come out about, well, we want to block him at every turn, that plays on the psyche of the american people. >> mike, what'ses in it f in it republicans? well, the republicans' backs are against the wall. they owned the house of representatives. they have a midterm election in 2014. for those republicans saying, oh, well, we always win midterm electio elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we ha
that line, that something has to be done. you cannot-- it's not like he's abraham lincoln, we're not at civil war. >> greta: the line i understand for executive orders on gun control, is that the line? >> no, the line is when you cross from administrative executive orders which deal with his office. >> greta: okay. >> and pass legislation during executive order. >> greta: suppose he says he's going to ban assault weapons with executive order. >> you can't do that, that's against the constitution, the constitution is very clear. >> greta: what would be your first step if he did that. >> i think we outlined multiple avenues. it's defending the constitution in any ways we can legally and that process has many different avenues. we're willing to take those to defend the constitution. i think it the right thing to do. >> greta: and we, do you have any idea how many republicans are with you. >> i know you're going to be on my side, that's two. >> greta: i don't know if i would be on your side, i don't have a dog-- >> when i say we, i think the american people in particular are frust
ceremony, he'll be using both abraham lincoln's bible and dr. king's bible. obviously a heavy amount of symbolism there. >> and chief justice john roberts helms both of those? >> that's right and the first hispanic justice on the supreme court sonia sotomayor will to g take on. we had jen saki leading off the top of the show, your former colleague, as you guys were out on the road for the campaign, and we know that the president is now relaunching his campaign efforts for his second term to get the agenda across, leading off with gun control. do you think that organizing for action will actually work, that the catalyst of newtown combined with that of the machine that is the president's re-election style could work to get the american support the president feels he needs? >> i absolutely think so. 90% of the public thinks there should be universal background checks. you go to members of congress and they say i can't vote for that. i'm fearful of the mra and the organizing efforts that they would put together in my community, my congressional district. we know it's time to align where
republican party of abraham lincoln. >> those extremists were alive and well this week, calling for the president's impeachment and saying president obama was acting like a king with his executive orders on gun safety. this kind of extremism gets them a 26% rating. do you think that really is what it's all about? or is it the obstruction or both? >> i think the rating is going to go down, ed. i think we're looking at potential for the republican party to be rated in the eyes of the american people much the way the entire congress is rated. do nothing and down in the teens. and as i said, that's suicide for the republican party. >> at the same retreat today, republicans were told by a pollster to stop talking about rape. pretty good advice, i would say. is this because the extremism takes over the discussion when republicans do try to talk about issues as sensitive as that? >> in many respects some of them do not know how to talk about it, ed. you heard what colin powell said, what you played there. i've heard what colin powell has said for the past 20 years or so about racism in
. no elected republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had they all attended, they would have joined not only nancy prksz pelosi and harry reid but tommy lee jones. as tip o'neil said, love the sinner, hate the sin. we need to get back to a time when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neil. there's no shortage of parties planned
's short letter. most second inaugural speeches are shorter. lincoln's second was short and washington's, i think it's shorter, more concise and the president, if he wants to create a memorable inaugural needs one or two things. it's not a state of the union, not a laundry list, it's one or two themes, if he talked about fixing the broken politics in washington, which we know is hackneyed and needs repair or long-term entitlement reform, one or two big things and stuck with that, i think that'd be better off than creating a laundry list of stuff. >> steve: sure, the laundry list comes with the state of the union and you and everybody else will see the president take the oath, the ceremonial oath and speech at noon on fox. thanks steve. >> steve: you bet. a group overcome treacherous seas to victory in one of the world's most dangerous races. modeled for success. it does a body good. and also the secret to winning yourself a nobel peace prize? sign us up! ♪ >> all right. it's one of the most dangerous ocean races around. sailing from sydney, australia to taz mania, in 1998 a group of amat
the swearing-in ceremonies? a family bible that belonged to his in-laws, the bible used by abraham lincoln, the bible that dr. martin luther king carried with him during his travels and hosa parks' bible that she owned as a civil rights activist? >> rosa parks. >> yes. you're right. you're right. >> wow. congratulations. okay. so that's the one that won't be, but the other three will. >> he is using the in-laws' family bible in a small ceremony on monday. he is stacking the lincoln and martin luther king bibles. >> let's go back across to kath. we have kim kardashian with us, and it's her birthday from los angeles. who was the first president to be sworn in by a woman. president lyndon johnson, john kennedy, bill clinton, or george w. bush? >> bill clinton? [ buzzer ] >> you're a winner too. >> yes, you are. >> all right, kim kardashian gets my book. so the correct answer here, president lyndon johnson. >> lyndon johnson. you might remember that famous, famous picture on air force one after president kennedy was assassinated. he was sworn in by a dallas judge, sarah hughes. >> okay. well,
with blanch lincoln. it's not been quite the same as the gop. i think you're going to see more of that. this is really going to play out, though, guys in 2015 and 2016, i think you'll see the fault line in the party populist versus an elite fault line. and i think you'll see him as a reformer taking on public employees, talking about having sort of tighten the belt on fiscal issues. and then you're going to see somebody who is that old-time candidate, talking about populism, holding true to the true faith. >> hey, jonathan, it's heilmann. just to play off that last point. >> yeah. >> is it not the case that if secretary clinton runs in 2016, that this division could get papered over again? she is someone who would be acceptable to both parts of the democratic -- the schism that you're talking about. so first of all, if she runs, does it get papered over again because she becomes the democratic nominee by acclamati acclamation? if they doesn't run, are there other candidates you're thinking of? >> let me take your second question first. i think those two candidates are sort of the examp
